The charismatic proprietors care deeply about their guests and every exquisite detail. This establishment merits being a destination in itself, as well as a stop through, or college visit at one of the many North Country colleges. White Pillars is nothing short of perfect in every way--every room, every morsel. Yum! and Bravo!

Stayed in the Craftsman Suites which is a renovation on the property. Very nice with excellent architectural details. Very high quality in all aspects of the guest areas and the service. John and Donna are excellent hosts, maintaining a balance of service and personal connection with the guests.

Donna Clark is a gem of a host!!! Gorgeous and charming! Craftsman style with comfortable amenities and nice private baths that have jetted tubs. Spacious rooms with a lot of historic features including wood floors, exposed beams and nice trim! This B and B is awesome and you will love staying here for sure!!

We have stayed at White Pillars 4 times since August, and been in a different room each time. It is at the top of my list of favorite B&Bs. From the first, walking in the door feels like you've arrived at home. White Pillars actually consists of two different farmhouses (the Homestead building and the Craftsman building), both of which... More

The building is... Amazing... So we'll kept... So charming. Really really nice. Well done to the owners. I didn't eat breakfast there... But everything was more than comfortable and up to high standards! It is a little bit remote... Which could be exactly what you want! But it's a lovely place to stay for sure!

John & Donna were very personable and went out of there way to make our labor day weekend an amazing experience. The lakeside house had this warm cabin feeling and already had board games, a boat full of fuel and an entire shed of split wood. We were lucky enough to meet them in person and very impressed. Locals were... More

Very nice, large, clean, and relaxing place to stay. Enjoyable scenic views just off of RTE 11. Wonder full views of the scenic landscape. Warm, friendly, and inviting atmosphere. A wonderfully comfortable bed with WiFI and a flat screen in the room. Large open living room for just sitting around for a chat. Wonderful place to stay for a visit... More

As a get-away for a winter weekend, my husband and I returned to the White Pillars (having been there several times while our son was a student at Clarkson University). What a wonderful experience it has been every time we have stayed at either of the Clark's houses. Rooms are tastefully decorated, bathrooms are extremely clean, and both houses portray... More

I stayed at the White Pillars lodge when returning my daughter to college at St Lawrence University. The service was excellent, and the inn keepers went out of their way to make me feel at home. I stayed in the Adirondack Room (they upgraded me due to a problem with the TV in my reserved room), and it was spacious,... More
